Measure to curb copper theft discussed in Frankfort

FRANKFORT, KY (WAVE) – Proponents of a measure aimed at curbing the theft of copper and other valuable metals met in Frankfort Thursday.

The group tallied in support of House Bill 390, which would prevent criminals from getting fast cash from stolen metals.

The legislation would require anyone looking to sell metal to provide proof of ownership before being mailed a check.

Metal theft costs businesses nearly $1 billion every year nationwide.
